Connecticut Gas Prices Rise 7 Cents in a Week

Prices at the pump continue rising after falling from the $4 mark.


In just a week, the average price of gas in Connecticut rose from $3.63 to $3.70, according to price tracking website Connecticut Gas Prices.

Prices peaked in April at nearly $4.16 a gallon, but then bottomed out to $3.60, the lowest price since January. Since the Fourth of July, prices have steadily risen from $3.60.

“Those who stuck around the low gas price party expecting it to last have realized they’re out in the cold,” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “Oil prices are well off their recent lows, and we’ll likely continue to see the national average rise in response. Most regions should see prices rising.”

There's no reason for gas to be this high. Just greed. I paid $3.37 for gas in Massachusetts yesterday and it's at least 50 cents higher in CT.
